Optolong filters

I am aware that this question may have been already submitted but as I would like to upgrade my filter setup I wonder whether some of you use Optolong filters for photometry. I can see that they offer the 5 filter setup at a competitive price.

Thank you for your advice.

I saw it too and I wanted to

I saw it too and I wanted to buy it as well.  Instead, I bought the more expensive Astrodon filters (my second choice was Baader) and this is one of the main reasons why.

Maybe their UBVRI filters would have been better or maybe that was just a bad Optolong narrowband but the way I saw it, it would be better to pay extra for a functional filter.  The cost difference wasn't enough to warrant risking buying bad filters.
